Are you someone that suffers with anxiety in everyday life? Then chances are, it's going to spill over into your dreams & vice versa until life just feels like one big endless bundle of anxious?The bottom line is, something in your life is out of balance and needs sorting and your Dream will alert you to this. When it comes to us humans, mental and physical aren't separate, if you hurt your knee,you might have to limp putting more pressure on the other-side of your body? This in turn could make the hips out of alignment and also cause you pain in that area? Which in turn could make the spine out of alignment which could mean one shoulder is higher than the other causing more pressure on one side of the neck? Physical pain can make you feel depressed ...and so on, so one simple knee problem ends up transcending much wider.
It's the same with mental health, transcending wider than just your head, with anxiety it can make a person feel sick or actually be physically sick, have tummy upset, pins and needles, racing heartbeat, shortness of breath etc.? Our mind and body is connected, dreams do their very best to try and help us cope, although it may not feel like it of course, but once you understand what is going on, hopefully you will see things differently?
When you go to sleep, you're body will try and release as much of the anxiety as it can for you, safely via a dream so that it's not stored in your solar plexus, it's the place where we store our emotions, good, bad & ugly and is located in the abdomen, it's a collection of two nerves that intertwine and pass each other. If all your emotions built up in your solar plexus and were never released it could make you very ill.
The good news is anxiety doesn't just happen to you, you weren't born with anxiety, it's often triggered via a traumatic event/s? It might've started in childhood, but not shown itself until something triggered it again in adulthood? Or due to loss or an accident ? But there are ways of learning to manage it so that you control it rather than the other way around.
